Teen Tech Month Celebrated at Metropolitan Libraries
Most teens are tech savvy, and the Metropolitan Library System is taking the month of March to congratulate them and introduce them to things with which they may not be familiar.
“March is Teen Tech Month at MLS” said Emily Williams, the library system’s Young Adult Services Coordinator. “We’ve lined up a series of programs and events for teens at several of our libraries. Our topics cover everything from movie making to video gaming to building your own computer. And as they say in commercials, “Wait! That’s not all!”
MLS encourages interested teens to call the library at which they wish to attend a program to check on pre-registration or with any other questions.
All programs are free.
